No way I would trade Bruce for segura.


bruce isn't the right guy to deal, but trading for Segura now is a good idea.


If you need steals from your SS, as most people do, I'd just roll with Betts unless Segura is really cheap (Bruce ain't cheap)

Thanks for the responses guys. Bruce seemed like my most expendable hitter, or maybe Starling Marte, but I want/need Marte's SBs.


How about some pitchers I grabbed off the wire a little while ago: Jesse Hahn and Taijuan Walker?

I need a solution at SS. Im currently starting Mookie Betts (eligible in Yahoo).


Guys like Jed Lowrie, Andrelton Simmons, and Brandon Crawford are on the wire. There is another owner with Jean Segura on his bench right now. Im also thinking of offering Jay Bruce for him.


Any thoughts? Anything else I should consider, like prospects likely to be called up?

Thoughts on RA Dickey? I grabbed him in a mixed 12 team standard roto league after another owner cut bait on him. Hes just been an ERA and WHIP drain on my team so far.


Theres an innings cap, if that makes a difference.

Melvin says #Athletics need to get Johnson straightened out. Will close by committee in meantime.

Susan Slusser ‏@susanslusser 7m
For those asking, "closer by committee" means Doolittle, Gregerson, Otero, Cook. #Athletics





Anyone have guess on who from that list will be the guy to grab? Doolittle's a lefty, Cook just returned from the DL, so Gregerson?

WGR 550 Buffalo reports the Bills are unlikely to re-sign or use the franchise tag on free agent FS Jairus Byrd.


"The two sides have had productive discussions, and while things could change, it seems at this point that the two sides will split," writes Jeremy White. White's colleague, Joe Buscaglia, is arguably the top Bills beat reporter and adds that the Bills "explored all their options, including a trade." GM Doug Whaley shot a "substantial offer" Byrd's way, but the 27-year-old seems intent on testing the market. The deadline for the Bills to use the franchise tag is Monday at 4 PM. Byrd is the top free-agent safety available.
